Love this pen!
from Norfolk, VA
Having been a calligrapher for a long time, I was interested in a fountain pen that would give me the thick and thin variation in line, yet be very smooth and easy to write with everyday. This pen fits the need perfectly.One thing that is true of this pen is that you need to know how to hold the nib on the paper correctly to get ink flow and smooth writing-similar to an italic nib.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

Tips About the Tip
from San Antonio, TX
This tip is terrific for people who print more than they use cursive writing. It is bold and requires a firm hand. If you write with a light hand, the downward strokes sometimes don't show up.
from Washington, DC
If you are a regular fountain pen user, you have a couple of these niche nibs in your collection. It is not a true caligraphy nib but it does give your writing a bit of character. Useful for signing cards and cheques. It is too big for my normal use (I use a fine regularly) but those that use a broader nib may find it works for them for daily use. It does have a higher ink flow than a standard "round" nib and you will find you need to fill it more frequently. It is a light pen and medium girth overall.
Good Pen But Not Great
from Roy, Utah
This is the second True Writer pen that I have purchased. I have been very happy with the first. The sales description lead me to believe that the pen nib was cut to facilitate a more expressive writing style. However, perhaps due to the narrow width nib, advertised as a medium point but really more of a fine point, The "style" was difficult to achieve. Other than that a good pen.
Unless you are able to fine tune your own nibs, do not buy this pen. Out of the box, It was extremely difficult to get the ink flowing. I had ink in the combs and even on the feed body but it wouldn't flow to the nib.The nib is extremely scratchy and almost impossible to use on an upstroke. It actually wants to dig into the paper. It acts more like a crisp italic nib than a stub.Levenger should revamp the design before selling anymore of these pens.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
